Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/12/2014


(sample 2012 vintage, best before 11-May-12) Cloudy, deep, chestnut reddy-brown with thin off-white head and spotted lacing.


Brown bread, molases, pine hops, toasted malts and mocha coffee.


Toasted bready malt, bitter spruce hops, mocha coffee and clove spice.


Bitter spruce needle, toasted nutty malt with nutmeg and cloves. A big beer with a high alcohol content, but balanced and surprisingly quaffable.
